Back in August Minneapolis-based Buffalo Wings restaurant announced they were opening in Canada including Winnipeg.
This week, the chain broke ground on their first restaurant in Oshawa. They are expected top open in May while completing other Ontario land deals for more locations.
Buffalo Wild Wings owns or franchises 730 sites in 44 states. The sports-friendly spots serve fried chicken wings with 18 different sauces and seasonings, including the sticky, spicy wings associated with Buffalo, N.Y. Other casual fare also is available.
Sometimes this year, they will be looking to open their first Winnipeg location. Given their sports connection over the years, could we be seeing them on Pembina Highway near the new stadium or downtown near the MTS Centre?
